It's October (yes, already!), so pumpkins are on our minds...and all around our farm. These vegetables (members of the gourd family) have been grown in America for over 5,000 years and have really taken root the world over. The earliest known tracing of pumpkins are seeds found in Mexico that date back to 7,000 - 5,000 BC!
Not only are we anticipating some giant pumpkins, but October is big all around here at the farm. We have Pumpkin Palooza every weekend through the end of the month, the SNGPG Pumpkin Weigh-Off is October10th and we have launched a new webstore!
Of course, we anticipate more than 4,000 people to join us at this year's Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off on October 10th. This is a true national event with media attention and world record breaking pumpkins! More information is to the right.
Our Gift Barn certainly has that Fall vibe. We're currently featuring home and gift items with that Fall flare and you'll just die when you see our frightfully good Halloween decorative items (and some are just so cute it's scary!).
Our ever-anticipated Christmas Loft is open as of October 1st. If you're already in that Christmas mode or simply want to step into a little holiday cheer, come on upstairs in our Gift Barn.
And you now have the convenience of buying some of those unique gift and home items from our brand-spankin' new Frerichs Farm Webstore! All the details about our online adventure are below or go directly to the webstore at www.frerichsfarm.frerichsfarmstore.com.
We've been adding a lot of picture and updates to our Facebook page so stop by to take a look and even to become a Frerichs Farm fan. You do not have to be a Facebook member in order to view our page.
We hope to see you during all the fun at the farm this month!

The Rhode Show Visits Frerich Farm!
Shawn Tempesta and Fox Providence's The Rhode Show crew recently visited the farm to check out our Fall activities. We were thrilled to be their hosts and they had a blast watching the kids enjoy our place during this special time of year.
Check it out! We currently feature Fall items such as our SNGPG Pumpkin Weigh-Off T-shirts along with other unique items we carry. The availability changes with the seasons, so look in at our webstore from time to time to see what's new.
